I Found Weird Pics On My Bf's Phone. I Don't Know Him At All!
- Published: 05 October 2019
- Hi! My name is Brie and I am seventeen years old. I live in a small town and currently I am in my final year of high school. My boyfriend, Jason, is one year older than me, and he has already finished school and moved to another town where he is attending college. So this year, we haven't seen each other often, maybe once every couple of months. I am planning to move to the same town and go to the same college, where I will study art, while he is in the computer science program.
Of course, Jason has made a lot of new friends there, and he is not really eager to spend 6 - 7 hours driving to see me in our hometown. And I have a lot of studying to do in my final year, so we both cannot afford to see each other frequently, anyway. And we are totally fine with that, as long as we remain a couple. Life is hard sometimes, and we both accept that at the present time, we need to concentrate on what is the most important for us, while still maintaining our relationship.
But right now I can't be sure if we'll manage to stay together as a couple. How did this happen? I'm going to tell you.
…It was one of those happy days when Jason had found some time to come to our hometown to see me. We were cozily cuddling on the sofa, watching a movie, when he suddenly fell asleep, tired from the long drive home in a shared car, which his friends and he were taking turns driving. I was sitting next to him, looking with tenderness at my sweetheart, thinking about what his college life was like, wondering why he posted so few pictures of his new friends and surroundings on his Instagram account.
He left his smartphone on the table, buried under the bowls of popcorn, half empty potato chip bags, soft drink cans, and barely eaten chocolate bars – in other words, under everything that we had prepared for a quiet movie night at home.
I could not resist the temptation, so I took his smartphone and, holding it in one hand and a chocolate bar in another, I started looking at the pictures. Oh, please don't think that I was SPYING on my boyfriend! I wasn't thinking anything like that at all! I only wanted to look at the pictures of his college life. He told me a lot about it when we talked on the phone almost every other night, but he never sent me any pictures and I wanted to see what his friends looked like.
So, I was scrolling through dozens of pretty but also standard pictures... when suddenly I saw a bundle of pics where my Jason was dressed up in a fluffy pink dress and was wearing an excessive amount of make-up, with pink lipstick and glitter eye shadow. He was posing on the street, and it was late at night, judging by the dim lights. Jason was surrounded by a crowd of boys I did not know, except for one. It was his roommate Marek. And in one of the pictures Jason was kissing (or pretending to kiss) Marek on the cheek with his pinky-colored lips.
I was shocked and could not come up with any explanation for these bizarre actions, but I thought that Jason would tell me what was going on and how it happened that he, dressed in a pink frilly dress, kissed his roommate. Right at that moment Jason fidgeted and woke up, I barely managed to put his smartphone back on the table. I decided that, this evening, I wasn't going to ask any questions. I was too nervous because of what I saw, and was afraid that I might say something wrong. In addition, by the time we had finished watching the movie, I had to hurry home, since it was getting late, and my old-fashioned parents still expected me to come home to sleep
That next morning Jason and I went out for a breakfast together. Sipping my coffee, I casually asked him what his life was like at college, how his roommate Marek was doing, and what kinds of jokes and pranks they did at his dorm and in computer science school. He told me so many stories about his studies and about his new friends... but nothing about the cross dressing pranks. But I did not give up. I pretended that I was very interested in his friends (well, in fact, I was) and asked him if he had any pictures. Jason willingly took his smartphone out and started showing me the pictures that I had already seen yesterday, making comments and explaining to me who was who, where these pictures were taken, and when. Jason scrolled through all the pictures on his smartphone but there were NO pink dress-wearing boys… Did it mean that he had erased them? But why? At that moment I felt really uncomfortable. Was he hiding something from me?
But this time I did not get a chance to find out. Jason had do get going. He jumped in his rental car, picked up his friends, and left town.
